I grew up soaking in the salty breeze and feasting on the freshest seafood imaginable in sunny Florida. Grilled shrimp, lobster soup — you name it, I loved it!

Then, life led me to Provo Utah, far from the ocean and surrounded by mountains. At first, I had my doubts about finding good seafood here. But to my surprise, Provo has some fantastic seafood restaurants despite being miles from the coast!

I’m excited to share my favorite seafood spots in and around Provo. Even surrounded by mountains, you can still get your seafood fix here in Provo Utah.

My first visit to Kickin’ Seafood left me surprised by the size and quality of the portions.

Accompanied by my two sons, we ordered this huge bag with Dungeness crab. It was awesome! The crawfish and shrimp complemented the meal perfectly.

We also tried the shrimp Po Boy sandwich and the Cajun wings, which were delicious!

The lively and inviting atmosphere is perfect for hanging out with family and friends or even for a date night. The menu contains tasty dishes made with fresh seafood and authentic Cajun flavors from New Orleans.

Don’t miss out on their famous seafood bags, where you can customize your meal with your favorite seafood and seasoning!

During my visit to Pier 8, I just had to try the Shrimp and Sausage Étouffée. It reminded me of Louisiana. The rich flavors and tender shrimp perfectly complemented the spicy Creole sauce.

My son, Tristan, opted for the build-your-own seafood bag loaded with mussels, crawfish, and Pier 8’s signature Cajun spice. The smell alone was mouthwatering!

We indulged in New Orleans-style beignets for dessert, fresh and hot out of the kitchen!
